Interior design is more than just decorating a place. It involves creativity and a passion for making a space functional and beautiful at the same time. Some would argue that you need a degree to become an interior designer, while others say you don’t. And while we ponder whether we should take interior design classes or not, here are five of the interior designers in the Philippines that are inspiring us right now… and perhaps, you too after this!
